If you are reading this, then it means that you are human. The world has many creatures, both living and non-living. Humans are the most advanced creatures, and their difference from the rest can be seen from far. The intelligence levels of humans is unmatched, and no wonder they are always looking for ways to make their lives better. There is a lot of human activity happening each day. Some activities make it easy for humans to live while others are destructive. The following are some of the responsibilities that you hold as a human in this beautiful planet
You are responsible for your happiness
You may have heard people say time and again that you are responsible for your own happiness. You can either choose to be happy in this life or decide to lead a dull one. However, this does not mean that you will have good moments all the time. There will be ups and downs in this life, but how you embrace every situation is what matters. The small talks you hold with yourself will determine whether you will have a good day or not. It is time that you start embracing yourself with positivity, and your life will not be the same again.
Be your brother’s keeper
When was the last time that you did something good for your friend or even a stranger? Making someone else smile can change your life in ways that you may never imagine. You do not have to be rich to extend good deeds. It is the small things that you do daily that matters a lot in this life. For instance, playing with kids in an orphanage will put a smile on their faces. The same will apply when you visit a home for the elderly and help them in areas such as dressing and cleaning.
Take care of the environment
Humans have been the biggest contributors to environmental degradation. Think about the poisonous gases that come from industrial action. Environmental conservation has thus become a topic of discussion that attracts people from all walks of life. You do not need to wait until there is environmental pollution to take action. You have to engage in activities that do not pollute the environment. You need to understand that polluted air is not good for us as it can lead to diseases and also make the world inhabitable.
Safety of other creatures
The high intelligence levels that you have as a human being comes at a cost. You need to ensure that the other creatures are safe. For instance, you may own pets, and you have to ensure that they are always healthy. Humans have dominion over creatures, but that does not mean that you should exploit them. You should note that some creatures can harm and you should approach them with care. You also need to learn some of your actions will have a direct impact on the quality of life that other creatures will lead.
To make the world a better place
There are a lot of changes that have occurred to this world over the years. Humans are very active when it comes to innovation and creativeness. It does not matter how small your contribution is, but what matters is the impact it will have. You do not need someone to instruct you on what to do because the feeling of making the world a better place should come from within. However, you need to make peace with some of the things that you cannot change. You also need to understand that you cannot help everyone in this world.
